Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me: I like coffee, NPR, trying different beers and whiskeys,
cheesy 80's music, and sushi (my screen name is "Wasabi"TennisGuy,
not "Was a Bi[sexual]"TennisGuy!). I also enjoy going to the gym,
playing tennis, and going for bike rides (I have a Trek that's like
my best friend!). There's nothing I enjoy more than losing myself
in a good book or movie, or perhaps researching something on the
In terms of my match, I hope to meet a genuinely nice person. What
impresses me the most is a SMART woman who is down-to-earth,
practical, and who leads a balanced life - I need to be attracted
to more than just appearances! Also, it would be nice if I could
meet someone who is capable of doing more than just going to bars
and baseball games.
As for me, I have my act together, and I live by myself in my very
own house. Now that I've finally found my place in life, it really
feels like something is missing. After meeting many women who
really aren't my type, I'd like to meet a woman who is ready to be
in a relationship! I've had my fair share of first dates that went
nowhere, attracting women who I wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole,
getting weird messages, etc., and I'm a bit sick of it! I feel like
I've missed out on so many things, but I'd rather be with the one
who's right for me than selling out.
P.S. - I CAN'T SEE "LIKES"! Every day I see plenty of "likes", but
no messages. Man up and e-mail me! You've e-mailed before, right??
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an investment analyst, covering international equities (...in
institutional investing, not retail investing). I occasionally
hobnob with CEOs, hedge fund managers, high ranking government
officials, and the like. All that highfalutin business doesn't
impress me very much and I'm not very materialistic, nor am I a
money obsessed psychopath - it's the little things in life that
In my free time, I'm really into trying different beers and
whiskeys (...but I'm just a social drinker). If the weather is nice
after work then I usually go for a little bike ride or hit the gym.
One of my guilty pleasures is watching House Hunters International.
You can buy a mansion in South America for the cost of a condo, but
risk being kidnapped and ransomed. I also took guitar lessons for
many years and I occasionally play a tune.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being unnoticed (which means that I love getting attention from
women). I'm like something that you search for when you open the
fridge, yet it's right in front of you. You have to kiss a lot of
frogs before you find your prince, but who's going to kiss this
frog (er, prince)?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get good comments on my teeth and hair. I'm also young looking,
and some people say I'm very handsome (...not just my parents!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like non-fiction books. Yes, I do read books that aren't
on the list of readings from senior year of high school! But I
liked The Great Gatsby, which led me to reading everything
Movies: Catch Me If You Can, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lost in Translation, Meet the Parents,
anything with Adam Sandler, Her.
Shows: I don't really have any TV shows that I watch regularly, but
I was a huge LOST fan while it was on. Welcome to Sweden is rather
awkward but funny (love it!). I also like Pawn Stars, Flip or Flop,
and House Hunters.
Music: I just listen to whatever is on the radio (which is usually
tuned to NPR), and I love 80's music - with a huge collection to
prove it! I'm a big fan of Sublime, 311, and Red Hot Chili
Food: Chinese Food, sushi, mushroom pizza, Sam Adams beer, dark
chocolate, salsa, Mexican food. I'm turning into a beer snob.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet, food, coffee, my comfy bed (I take sleep seriously - 300
thread count sheets, down comforter, plush top bed, etc.),
interesting books, my Chrysler 200 (smoothest thing on wheels!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How/when/where I will meet the one for me...it could be someone in
line at the supermarket, sitting next to me on a plane, or some
other way. So, I'm romantic, but have yet to meet someone to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching some corny movie on TV while sipping some beer. Basically
I'm trying to relax from a hectic week.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're PETITE, smart, and not terribly out of shape. Generally
speaking, the more petite you are, the better! I know that sounds
picky, but I wished people would understand that I'm not a very big
man! I'm just 5'5" and 150 pounds and I'm only attracted to petite
women! Also, you should have a good mix of book and street-smarts.
Having an active interest in coffee, beer, dark chocolate, and
sushi wouldn't hurt. Last but not least, you don't have any second
thoughts about being on a dating website. To be honest, most of the
people I know who got married met someone online and I don't see
anything wrong with it.
If I pique your interest, send me a message. I'm sorry that I
probably don't live in the SAME exact city or town as you - it's a
big world! From the way women treat even minor distances, one would
think that people don't drive or take public transportation. Love
is a result of mutual attraction, not distance! Is it possible to
be a bit flexible? Your George Clooney isn't going to show up at
your doorstep one day, dating requires a bit of effort!
I realize my profile is a bit sarcastic. I'm just trying to be
entertaining while I have your attention, especially for the people
who think that being boring is the worst...which isn't true at all!
I've literally been to hell and back and it's not having a sense of
